Most people associate heroine addiction with extreme thinness but this was not the case for Marc Jacobs, who had been hooked on the stuff in the late 90s.

According to Robert Duffy, the longtime business partner of the designer, Jacobs would binge eat while on the drug, he recalled to the Wall Street Journal. Duffy even told his friend, “”You’re the only fat heroine addict I know.”

Jews — we can’t even get skinny on heroine. We have no luck.
